Consumer Complaint: I received notice from XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX ( dated XXXX XXXX XXXX ), stating that Barclays Bank Delaware had referred my account to them for collection. The letter stated the amount owed and where payments could be made. I sent out a letter on XXXX XXXX XXXX ( Certified Return Receipt ) to the Law Firm stating that I was willing to make payments on this account. The letter was received at the P.O. Box address provided on XXXX XXXX XXXX at XXXX XXXX . No contact was ever made to me in reference to the letter that I sent, trying to resolve the debt. I also submitted a settlement offer on the firms website on XXXX XXXX XXXX and no response was ever provided.
On Saturday, XXXX XXXX XXXX I receive a notice in the mail from XXXX XXXX XXXX , XXXX stating that it had come to their attention that a civil suit has been filed against me in XXXX XXXX XXXX . I have not received notice in reference to any of the matters and I have certainly been trying to resolve the situation without having to have a judgment filed against me.
This law firm does not seem to want to assist those who are willing to take care of their debts, they are automatically trying to sue and garnish wages.
